Welcome to BE.

I believe Hayley82 is in Hoboken. The Mrs and I lived there for a year (on Bloomfield between 2nd & 3rd) but we moved out to the Jersey burbs in August 04. I really liked Hoboken (except for the lack of parking) and I carried on playing in the Hoboken adult soccer league (at "Frank Sinatra Field") well after we left.

Yes, the parking situation is a nightmare, we dealt with it for a while until our car got towed away by the police by accident!! We now pay for parking in our building.

How do you like the burbs? We have thought about trying it a few times but in the end figured it just isn't worth it seeing as we're not going to be here long term. We did live in Princeton for the first 5 months that we were in the US as my husband's office was there at first, lovely place but a bit too quiet for us at that time.

I am definitely missing home at this time of year, we did our christmas trip in October so this will be our first christmas spent in the US & I don't know quite what to expect!!

Pretty good, really. We live about 30 miles west of New York (in Morris County) and my wife's commute to Lower Manhattan (before our daughter came along) was about 1hr 30 mins door to door (my commute is about 20 mins). At the weekend we can be in the city in an hour, in other directions we can be in unspoilt state parks and so on in much less. Out here we were able to buy a 2-bed house in a historic neighbourhood (it's fairly small and basically has no garden but the surroundings partially make up for that), whereas even in Hoboken we would have struggled to buy anything reasonable.

And I think there's a couple of people who live out there...or there abouts at least.

How funny, I'm a block away from where you were! My fiance plays footy down on Sinatra, you might have met each other!

Hi, I'm here in Hoboken with my fiance. Been here since June 04. There are lots of expats here, most of my friends are from UK!
